Okay. do you take aleve, advil or ibuprofen?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

in the past week ive taken bayer a couple times a week

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.

okay. I think you might have a GI bleed. An upper GI bleed.

The smelly urine probably isn't a UTI if it has been going on for a month
